This story starts off with a gripping scene that leaves the reader needing to know what in the actual world is going on. It was a chapter that had me at the edge of my seat, needing to know what happened next!

The Shadow Box is a mystery and thriller that creates an exciting story told through different character POVs as well as different timelines. I really liked Claire’s POV as she worked to prove her husband’s attempt at her murder as well as a 20+ year old crime.

The mystery and crime-solving in this story is really great. I enjoyed trying to figure out what was actually happening, who did what, and who was going to survive! The pacing of the book, at times, did cause me to stumble while reading. The timeline jumps around, and I would get a big confused about where we were, however, I was always able to recover and get back into the story. Overall, it was an engrossing story that truly captured my attention, and it was a joy to read!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend The Shadow Box to readers that enjoy a crime-solving storyline told from multiple POVs with a strong thriller plot!

The Amazon Charts bestselling author of Last Day delivers a haunting thriller about how far one wife is willing to go to expose the truth—and the lengths someone will go to stop her.

After artist Claire Beaudry Chase is attacked and left for dead in her home on the Connecticut coast, she doesn’t know who she can trust. But her well-connected husband, Griffin—who is running for governor—is her prime suspect.

Just before the attack, Claire was preparing for an exhibit of her shadow boxes, one of which clearly accuses Griffin of a violent crime committed twenty-five years ago. If the public were to find out who her husband is, his political career would be over. Claire’s certain her husband and his powerful supporters would kill her to stop the truth from getting out.

When one of Claire’s acquaintances is murdered, the authorities suspect the homicide is linked to the attack on Claire. As the dual investigations unfold, Claire must decide how much she’s willing to lose to take down her husband and the corrupt group of elites who will do anything to protect Griffin’s interests and their own.
